Self-taught botanical artist Duy Anh Nhan Duc uses a steady hand to arrange dandelion blossoms in artful imitations of their flight through the air. His monochrome works are each reminiscent of a universal childhood urge to scatter a dandelion’s seedlings with a single blow, eager to watch the feathery pieces take flight in the wind.

The artist currently has several pieces on view at the Trentham Gardens and sells a number of DIY wire sculpting kits from his website where he also discusses in great detail how each piece is built.

Back in September I posted a photograph of an unknown art installation that seemed to show numerous dandelions hanging upside down in a small white room. At the time I was unable to investigate any further and it seemed destined to remain a mystery. That is until shinyslingback did the requisite leg work and discovered the piece was by German artist Regine Ramseier as part of ArToll Summer Lab 2011. More
